Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel electronic medical record system (EMR) based on a brand new concept to support doctors’ cognition and medical analysis wherever they are. Conventional EMR systems have the advantage of helping doctors easily retrieve and manage mass medical records. On the other hand, medical records have been expected to support doctors’ planning. Most conventional EMR systems don’t have an appropriate function for such purpose, however. Because of its poor user interface, which is similar to legacy medical records written on paper, they can’t help doctors analyze medical data that occurs chronologically. To attain that purpose, the system has to have the ability to visualize medical data that occurs over various time spans. This is because the relationship among the different medical data should be observable when we look at it over various time spans. In addition, doctors aren’t always at their desks, so they can’t always use EMR systems with a desktop PC. Therefore, in view of these problems, we propose a system that has timeline interface which visualizes medical data that occurs over various time spans and its client application works on a mobile device. In this manner, the system can support doctors’ cognition and medical analysis wherever they are. In addition, we are verifying this system in the medical field.
